Overview

The compact executive SUV class is crowded and competitive, but the BMW X3 manages to stand out. Where others disappoint, it exceeds expectations. It keeps the driver appeal BMW are renowned for, and delivers it as a practical, upmarket and compact SUV that meets modern demands.

What you need to know about the BMW X3

After the great success of the X5, BMW obviously downsized the SUV formula to create the X3 – and drivers will be pleased they did. While the driving experience of many 4x4s is lacking, the X3 boasts precise steering. It feels planted and composed around corners, largely helped by electronic suspension and damping options.

The optional variable damper control is particularly desirable, as it monitors your driving and will adjust the suspension firmness to suit. As such, the ride comfort improves dramatically, soaking up potholes and poor road surfaces and providing enough grip that’ll give you confidence on twisty roads.

All in all, we find the X3 a well-rounded car. It fulfils SUV duties, is comfortable and satisfies enthusiastic drivers who want a genuine BMW with added practicality.

What to watch out for

When it was first released, the X3 was one of the first mid-size SUVs to carry a premium badge. However, many people felt like it missed the mark somewhat. The cabin, quality of ride and lack of off-road ability were criticised. Although not everyone agreed, the second generation was a lot better received. Subtle changes to the design, cabin space, and the balance between ride and handling keep it competitive with an ever-increasing number of rivals.

Other options

  • Jaguar F-Pace
  • Mercedes GLA
  • Audi Q5

Expert opinion

Sandwiched between the X1 and X5, the X3 is a practical choice for many. It’s small and sporty, with all the great qualities of its larger sibling. Running costs have improved, and they hold their value well. As a result, everything stacks up for the X3.

Why buy a used BMW X3 with Exchange and Mart?

BMW's second generation X3, sold between 2010 and 2017, is premium mid-sized SUV that's a larger, plusher and more powerfully efficient choice than its predecessor, stacking up impressively against prestigiously-badged alternatives from Audi and Volvo in this sector. Like its rivals, dynamically targeted almost exclusively towards on-road use, it's another example of just how car-like a model of this kind can be.

About the BMW X3

This X3 came of age in second generation guise, an immeasurable improvement over the MK1 version in every possible way. Even the best of this car's prestige rivals from this era struggled to match this one's hugely impressive blend of performance and efficiency. It feels up-market, it rides impressively and, thank goodness, on-tarmac, it drives just as a BMW should.All of which means that used SUV buyers in this sector who can afford the asking prices should find that this X3 adds up very nicely indeed. Assuming that they don't prioritise off road ability of course, but then in that case, it's fair to ask whether a larger but more conventional 2WD BMW 520d Touring for around the same kind of money wouldn't be a better bet. It comes down to personal preference - and we're guessing that's a choice you'll enjoy making.

Representative finance example

If your borrow amount is £7,000 with a deposit of £1,000, a selected term of 48 months, at a representative APR of 14.9% (fixed) and an annual fixed rate of interest of 14.9%, you would pay £163.87 per month. Total charge for credit will be £1,865.76 and total amount repayable is £7,865.76
